ISI officer claiming bounty, not bin Laden courier, led US to AQ leader's Abbottabad lair: Expert

Washington, Wed, 10 Aug 2011 ANI

Washington/London, August 10(ANI): The US Government killed Osama bin Laden because a Pakistani intelligence officer came forward to collect the approximately 25-million-dollar reward from the State Department's Rewards for Justice program, an expert in US national security has claimed.


In her blog, RJ Hillhouse, a former professor and Fulbright fellow and also an ex-rum and jewel smuggler, cited sources that contend it was an Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officer who came forward to claim the substantial reward and to broker US citizenship for his family.


"The informant claimed that the Saudis were paying off the Pakistani military and intelligence (ISI) to essentially shelter and keep bin Laden under house arrest in Abbottabad," she quoted her sources, as saying.


"The CIA and friends then set about proving that OBL was indeed there. And they did," Hillhouse wrote on her blog.he also claimed that the Pakistani military, as well as the ISI, not only knew about the American raid on the bin Laden lair, but also cooperated with the United States.


"The ISI and Pakistani military were cooperating with the US on the raid... It had always seemed very far-fetched to me that a helicopter could crash and later destroyed in an area with such high military concentration without the Pakistanis noticing," she pointed out.


The US State Department said that it would not comment on Hillhouse's blog, the Daily Mail reports.


Hillhouse's explosive report would dispute the widely published reports that a courier working for bin Laden was the catalyst for the famous Navy SEAL Team Six mission. (ANI)
